If you are licensed to drive in Ohio and convicted of an OVI / DUI or lesser offenses in the Columbus area, such as physical control or reckless operation of a motor vehicle, different point values will be assessed by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) on your license.
Below is a list of common offenses and the points that are assessed once your conviction has been forwarded by the court to the BMV.
Common traffic offenses
|Vehicular Homicide/Assault||6 points|
|Fleeing/Eluding Officer||6 points|
|Street racing||6 points|
|Driving Under Suspension||6 points|
|Unauthorized Use of Vehicle||6 points|
|Felony involving vehicle||6 points|
|Underage O.V.I.||4 points|
|Reckless Operation||4 points|
|Speed (30 or more over limit)||4 points|
|Other moving violations||2 points|
If your driver’s license is from a state other than Ohio, the points associated with the above listed offenses will likely not apply to you. Please contact your local BMV or DMV, or an attorney licensed to practice in your state for more information concerning points being assessed to your license after a traffic conviction in Ohio.
